- “Unclaimed”: customers have not collected these packages at the post office or pickup point location within the given deadline (mentioned on the pickup notification instructions).
- “Refused”: the customer has refused the delivery.
After accepting and taking receipt of the package, NIMA sends an email to the customer to notify them that they have received their package and the reason for its return. They will then refund the order.
Customer Information: The goods rightfully benefit, with no additional payment and in accordance with the legal provisions, from:
- The legal guarantee of conformity for apparently defective, faulty or damaged goods or ones that do not match the order.
- The legal guarantee against hidden defects resulting from defects in material, design or workmanship affecting the goods delivered and making them unfit for use.
In this respect, we remind you of the provisions of articles L.217-4, L.217-5, L.217-12 and L.217-16 of the French Consumer Code, as well as articles 1641 and 1648 § 1 of the French Civil Code relating to the existence and implementation of the above-mentioned guarantees.
Legal Guarantee of Conformity:
(French Consumer Code, Article L 217-4)
“The seller must deliver goods that comply with the contract and is therefore liable for any lack of conformity existing at the time of delivery.
They are also liable for any lack of conformity resulting from the packaging, the assembly instructions or the installation when the latter was made their responsibility by the contract or was carried out under their responsibility."
(French Consumer Code, Article L 217-5)
"The goods conform to the contract:
1) If they are fit for the purpose usually expected of similar goods and, if applicable:
- If they correspond to the description and features presented by the seller to the buyer in the form of a sample or mode.
- If they have the features a buyer might legitimately expect in view of the public statements made by the seller, the producer or his representative, particularly through advertising or labelling.
2) Or if they have the characteristics defined by a mutual agreement of the parties or are fit for any specific purpose required by the buyer, brought to the attention of the seller and accepted by the latter."
(French Consumer Code, Article L 217-12)
"Any legal action prompted by a lack of conformity is governed by a two-year prescription period from the delivery of the goods.
(French Consumer Code, Article L 217-16)
"When the buyer asks the seller to repair a movable good covered by the guarantee, during the commercial warranty granted to him at the time of purchase, any period of at least seven days’ immobilisation shall be added to the duration of the remaining guarantee. This period will run from the date the buyer requests the seller’s intervention or from the date the goods in question are made available for repair, if this is after the request for intervention.
In view of the above, therefore, the customer has a period of two years from the delivery of the good(s) to take action against NIMA and may choose between repairing or replacing the good(s) ordered, subject to the cost terms set out in Article L.217-9 of the French Consumer Code.
The customer may cancel the sales contract, or have it amended if the defect is major and the time required for the chosen solution exceeds one month from the date of their request, or if the goods cannot be brought into conformity.
The customer is exempt from proving the good’s lack of conformity prior to delivery for a period of 24 (twenty-four) months following its delivery.
If the customer wishes to invoke the legal guarantee of conformity, he must send a registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt to the following address: NIMA – 164, Chemin Saint Jean du Désert – 13005 Marseille and return the good(s) ordered together with the invoice.
Legal Guarantee Against Hidden Defects
Article 1641 of the French Code Civil
"The seller is bound by the guarantee against hidden defects for any item sold making it unfit for use, or diminishing its use to such a point that the buyer would not have purchased it, or would not have paid as much for it, if they had been aware of them."
Article 1648 § 1 of the French Civil Code
"Any legal action resulting from redhibitory defects must be brought by the buyer within two years of the discovery of the defect."
The customer may therefore decide to invoke the guarantee against hidden defects in accordance with Article 1641 of the Civil Code. In this case, the customer may choose between cancelling the sale or a reduction in the sale price in accordance with Article 1644 of the Civil Code.
If the customer wishes to invoke the legal guarantee against hidden defects, he must send a registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt to the following address: NIMA – 164, Chemin Saint Jean du Désert – 13005 Marseille and return the good(s) ordered together with the invoice.
Depending on the type of customer claim and on condition that all the legal requirements in either instance are met, NIMA will refund, repair or replace the goods deemed to be non-conform or defective.
Refunds for goods deemed to be non-conform, defective or faulty will be made as soon as possible within a 14 (fourteen) days of the acknowledgement of the non-conformity or hidden defect by NIMA. The refund will be made by crediting the customer’s bank account or the PayPal account they used to pay for the order.
NIMA cannot be held liable in the following instances:
- Non-compliance with the legislation of the country to which the goods are delivered
- Misuse, professional use, negligence or lack of maintenance on behalf of the customer
- Normal wear and tear of the goods, an accident or force majeure.
NIMA does not provide any particular commercial guarantee for the goods.
